During the Spring Festival holiday, Ollie and I spent a little time in the hutongs (alleyways) – my favourite part of Beijing. The hutongs are all that remains of ‘old China’ and are full of hidden restaurants, shops, and the old traditional courtyard houses.
The Look of the Day was about warmth, as temperatures were around -8C! My cosy turtleneck, thick coat, and knee-high boots did the trick as we wandered around the narrow streets. I thought the hutongs made a beautiful backdrop – what do you think?
It’s Saturday – and I’m officially on a five-day holiday for Chinese New Year. Having slept in until 12.30pm today I am feeling well-rested, but guilty – there are so many things I want to do over this break!
Here is today’s Look of the Day – shots taken in Sanlitun’s back streets. The outfit features my awesome suede knee-high boots, which I am obsessed with (thank you Zara sales!). Tomorrow I’m planning to either visit the hutongs, or check out the newly renovated National Museum which I’ve heard great things about. How are you planning to spend your weekend?
Hello all! It’s Tuesday which means there are only 5 more days to go until Christmas! Today was a day spent helping Mum with all the last minute Christmas shopping, and MAN the malls are going crazy with their sales this year already! I couldn’t believe how many great deals were happening.. it was hard to control the wallet haha We decided to check out Sylvia Park, a big mall near my place which was decked out in Christmas lights, elves, and even Santa Claus!
Here are a few shots from our day, plus some outfit pics – I was wearing my new(ish) sweater found at Mango just before I left for the holidays. Turns out I needed it – the temperatures are not quite ‘summery’ yet! I’m quite taken with it, although my Dad and brother were less appreciative.. but what do they know, right? haha! What do you guys think?
See you again tomorrow!
